Kudos for the Scrivener 3 manual

I took the time to download and read through the Scrivener 3 manual yesterday. (Available here: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/learn-and-support/user-guides)

This is probably the best software manual I’ve seen this century. It’s mammoth—847 pages, US letter size—and well written. There are a lot of features you’d have a hard time discovering on your own… e.g., I didn’t know Scrivener now supports automatic transclusion, and it would have taken me forever to discover the “centered outlining” mode designed to simulate single-pane outliners (Figure 8.23; section 8.3.6). Even if you’re not the type to normally read software manuals, you’ll probably get something out of reading this.
